Your Driving Lessons in Wincanton
If this is your 1st driving experience you will start your lessons by driving up and down Common Road, and turning around with the help from your instructor if needed.
You will soon progress to driving on the other roads in the estate and around the town to get practice with rural roads, traffic lights, hill starts, clutch skills and so on.
Driving to other local towns like Gillingham and Sherborne will be the next step. It’s a great sense of achievement when you manage to drive through these places for the first time, and eventually with little to no help from your instructor.
Don’t worry though, your instructor will not take you to these places until you feel ready.
As you get closer to test standard most of your lessons will be in Yeovil so you can become familiar with the area, including the roundabouts, dual carriageways and even the road that the test centre is on. Your instructor will make sure you get experience with and become confident with, all of the more challenging locations in Yeovil to enable you to pass your test.
Your Test Centre
You will take your driving test at Yeovil Test Centre, Preston Road, Yeovil. (Abbey Manor Business Centre, Preston Road, Yeovil BA20 2EN)
You will get the chance to become very familiar with the test centre location throughout your driving lessons Your instructor will direct you there from Wincanton via varying routes. You may drive on the A303 coming off at Sparkford or stay on the dual carriageway until you get to the roundabout just past Tintinhull. Or you may drive through Charlton Hawthorne through to Sherborne, then onto the A30 and down Babylon Hill.
This way you will get lots of different driving practice completed on the journey into Yeovil, from rural roads to villages, towns and dual carriageways.
How soon you start to drive into Yeovil in your lessons will be entirely up to you and your instructor, but remember that there is a lot to learn in other locations such as Gillingham and Sherborne.
